Congratulations 




congratulations on your graduation from the university! This is a 
milestone that should bring great pride to you, your family and friends. 

I am certain that your time at the University of Maryland has 
been filled with new ideas, friendships and opportunities. As president 
of this great university, I want to express my hope that you have 
explored new areas and discovered new talents. The world is waiting 
for you to share them. 

As you move beyond the campus, I hope you will remember the 
intellectual curiosity and drive that inspired your time here. 
Graduating does not mean that learning has come to an end. It means 
that you are now equipped to take charge of your own learning. This 
is a privilege and a profound responsibility. Society's advancement will 
depend upon your knowledge and your leadership. 

As you leave us, you should take with you the pride we all feel in 
your accomplishments as scholars, artists, athletes and leaders. You 
have enriched the university's life and have helped it to climb to a new 
level of distinction. We welcome you into the alumni family, a truly 
special group. 

I hope that you stay connected to the university and take full 
advantage of being an alum. Stay involved with us and help new 
generations of students develop their futures. You can do this by 
returning to campus often, starting with Maryland Day 2013, on April 27. 

You have my very best wishes for all your future plans. Make your 
mark. But wherever your path takes you, please remember that 
you will always be a TERR I hope you will always stay in touch. 
Go Terps! 

Sincerely, 




Wallace D. Loh, President

CUSTOMS OF COMMENCEMENT 

Early commencement ceremonies at the University of Maryland 
were marked with great fanfare and celebration. The faculty gave 
huge banquets for the graduates the night before the event. The 
following morning, crowds gathered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, attracting not only friends and 
relatives, but also the fashionable elite of the day. At the ceremony, 
prayers were recited, speeches were made and honorary degrees were 
awarded to distinguished figures from across the country. Finally, as 
the audience cheered and threw flowers, the graduates came forward 
to collect their Latin-inscribed degrees.

ACADEMIC COSTUME 

The black caps and gowns worn by the students and faculty in the 
academic procession have been the traditional costume of scholars 
since the Middle Ages. The ordinary dress of the scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was similar to that of a cleric. Caps and gowns 
were probably worn to keep students warm in unheated buildings. 
Many medieval scholars were tonsured, like monks, and hoods served 
to cover their shaved heads until the skullcap later took its place. Even 
after the Civil War, most students at American universities wore caps 
and gowns daily while in residence. These varied in design until the 
American Intercollegiate Commission standardized them in 1894. At 
that time it was decided that all robes would be black. Colors on the 
trim of the gown were also standardized to indicate the scholar's 
academ ic discipline. 

The tassel may also be colored to represent an academic discipline 
or it may be black. Officially, the tassel is permitted "to lie where 
it will" on the mortarboard. However, numerous institutions have 
adopted the practice of having degree candidates wear the tassel on 
the right front side at the start of the commencement ceremony and 
then shift them to the left side after degrees are awarded. 

SENIOR MARSHALS 

Elected through a nomination process, senior marshals are leaders 
who play an important role in the graduation ceremony. They assist 
in organizing the thousands of graduates, leading them smoothly 
through the commencement procession. They also supply extra 
caps and hoods, as well as bobby pins to keep headwear secure. 
Winter 2012 marshals are listed on page S2 of this booklet.

Speaker Biographies 



ZAINABHOSSEINI / STUDENT SPEAKER 




zainab hosseini, born in Tehran to Mexican- 
American and Turkish Iranian parents, speaks 
three languages. She entered college at age 
15, she's worked with refugees in Iran and 
she's volunteered with indigenous children in 
Mexico. 

"Since I was a child, my mom got us 
involved in our community," she says. "Even 
in summers when I went back to visit family, 
I would go out and find places to help." 

A family science major and black women's 
studies minor, Hosseini says the course 
"Race and the Juvenile Justice System," fol- 
lowed by her family's move to inner-city 
Baltimore, helped solidify her desire to work 
in underserved communities. It was then 
Hosseini was able to see the inequities she'd 
studied in class. 

"She truly understands the importance of 
addressing social and family issues related 
to equity among various populations," says 
Lauren Doamekpor, a doctoral candidate who 
taught Hosseini in a research methods course. 

Hosseini designed a study abroad program 
through La Universidad de las Americas in 



Mexico last spring. She had a great experi- 
ence teaching English and volunteering in an 
organization for families in crisis. 

"I learn so much when working with kids," 
she says. 

Locally, she helped young people as a 
team leader for America Reads*America 
Counts and as a mentor in Prince George's 
County elementary schools. 

"I am continually astonished by the 
maturity, intelligence, resourcefulness and 
dedication of this 19-year-old," says Latifa 
Barnett, an adjunct professor at Montgomery 
College, from which Hosseini transferred. 

She plans to enroll in a joint master's of 
social work and law degree program after 
taking time off for spiritual studies and to 
travel. Hosseini may not be sure of her spe- 
cific career path, but knows it will reflect her 
upbringing. 

"I have no doubt that she will continue to 
prove successful in all of her future pursuits 
and make a major contribution to the world," 
says Barnett.

RETIRED NAVY CAPT. KENNETH S.REIGHTLER JR. / COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 




mi u.s. navai \< vdemy lifted the TV 

restrictions for its freshmen on July 20, 1969, 
so all midshipmen could watch the historic 
Apollo 11 moon landing. For young Ken 
Reightler, seeing men fly to the moon "made 
a lot of things in my head click." 

As the son and grandson of naval veterans, 
serving in the Navy came naturally to him. 
Reightler wasn't as clear, though, about how 
to meld his interest in flight, the country's 
burgeoning space program and his strengths 
in math and science. 

"I started looking at resumes of people 
who were in the space program. What 
did they do? What did they study? 
Reightler, the Robert A. Heinlein chair in the 
academy's aerospace engineering department 
"A path started to take form for me." 

After graduating in 1973, he entered the 
Navy's aviator flight training program. 
Reightler later became a test pilot, studied 
aeronautical engineering in graduate school 
and then served as a the chief flight instruc- 
tor at the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School. In 

he joined the NASA astronaut program, 



piloting two shuttle missions before retiring 
from the Na\ \ to work for I ockheed Martin 
as a senior executive. Reightler joined the 
academy this summer, sharing his expertise 
and experience with another generation. 
"It provides me an opportunity to give 
back," he says. "I can explain, 'This is possible 
and this is how you do it.' 1 have the opera- 
tional knowledge in addition to the theoretical. 
I've built it, tested it and flown it." 

Reightler, "a true son of Maryland," was 
born in St. Mary's County to parents whose 
families have been in the state for genera- 
tions. "I spent many summers on the Eastern 
Shore, learning the life of a waterman," says 
Reightler. I [e and his wife, Maureen, have 
called Annapolis home for nearly to years. 
She has her own ties to Maryland, being a 
direct descendent ol lames McHenry, for 
whom Fort McHenry is named. 

; back at the academy, hoping to 
motivate and instruct future officers, brings 
him full circle. "There is truly an inspira- 
tional aspect to this job," he says.

Maryland's Momentum 



It starts with an idea, the heart of innovation and entrepreneurship. 
Fearless Ideas ignite bold invention, spark quantum advances and drive 
passionate leaders. We are inspired by our faculty, alumni, the arts; 
informed with our half-billion-dollar research enterprise; shaped by a 
global perspective; refined by a community of the most talented students 
in the world. From research to development to launch, the University of 
Maryland is dedicated to the power of Fearless Ideas. 



Maryland continues to strengthen its rep- 
utation as one of the top public research 
universities nationally and internationally. 
It boasted 25 programs in U.S. News & 
World Report's top 10 rankings in 2012 and 
placed 38th in the 2012 Academic Ranking 
of World Universities. 

A new Honors College program starting 
next fall will give some of the university's 
brightest undergraduates unique internship 
opportunities and training for cybersecurity 
careers. The Advanced Cybersecurity 
Experience for Students (ACES) program, 
supported by $1.1 million from Northrop 
Grumman, features a "holistic" approach 
to cybersecurity that includes courses in 
computer science, business, economics and 
the social sciences. 

Maryland netted $502 million in exter- 
nal research grants in fiscal 2012. This 
includes an 11 percent increase in federal 
funding that supports innovative research 
programs in national security, veteran 



affairs, fire protection engineering and 
more. 

A human-powered helicopter designed, 
built and flown by students from the 
A. James Clark School of Engineering 
remained aloft in August for 65 seconds (a 
world record) in one flight while reaching 
a height of just over 9 feet in another. The 
series of test flights by Gamera II were 
preparation for an attempt at the $250,000 
Sikorsky Prize, which requires a vehicle 
to hover for one minute within a 10-meter 
square while momentarily reaching a height 
of 3 meters (9.8 feet). 

The MPowering the State initiative between 
the University of Maryland and the 
University of Maryland, Baltimore continues 
to grow A collaborative School of Public 
Health was unveiled in October, offer- 
ing graduate students at both campuses 
expanded education, research, service and 
training opportunities. Just announced is 
a collaborative Center for Health-related 



Informatics and Bioimaging, which will 
advance the concept of personalized 
medicine, where decisions and practices 
are tailored to individual patients through 
the use of genetic sequencing and other 
biomedical information. 

The Academy of Innovation and 
Entrepreneurship that launches in Fall 2013 
aims to cultivate the next generation of 
revolutionary thinkers. The academy will 
infuse innovation, entrepreneurship and 
creativity into new and existing courses as 
part of President Wallace Loh's vision to 
position UMD as one of the world's premier 
universities in this area. 

This fall, Maryland theatre majors collabo- 
rated with peers at the National Academy 
of Chinese Theatre Arts for a one-of-a-kind 
production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer 
Night's Dream." Students from the two 
institutions staged the play in China and the 
United States, with actors from each coun- 
try speaking in their native language. 



2012 Winter Commencement UNIVI PSITY Of MARYLAND 



OUR HISTORY S OUR FUTURE 

I rom its pre-Civil Wai roots as the state's first agricultural college 
and one ol America s 01 iginal land-grant institutions, the University 
of Maryland has emerged as a public research university of national 
stature, highly regarded for its broad base of excellence in teaching 
and research. 

Founded in 1856 by a group ol planters, the former Maryland 
Agricultural College required students to spend an houi a day hoeing 
or plow ins; on the college farm and to take courses in ancient and 
modern languages, natural sciences, English and mathematics \ltci a 
disastrous tire on campus m 1912, the state acquired the college and 
rebuilt it. The legislature in 1 988 combined its institutions of higher 
education to form the University System of Maryland, and the 
growing College Park campus was named its flagship. 

lod.u Mai \ land takes kill advantage ol the unique resouro 
the nation's capital, attracting top students and faculty; enriching the 
economic, soda! and cultural life of the state; nurturing innovation 
and entrepreneurship; and engaging the global community to address 
some of the most critical issues of our day. Within the university's 12 
schools ami colleges, oui academic community is addressing today's 
most pressing scientific and societal challenges, such as climate 
change, the economy, energy, homeland security and public health.

graduate students comes to study with a faculty that ranks among 
the finest in the nation, with three Nobel laureates, five Pulitzer Prize 
winners and scores of Fulbright scholars. 

The quality of our students and the support of our alumni continue 
to grow. We received more than 26,000 applications for 4,000 
first-year seats in Fall 2012. Accepted students who complete their 
academic journey join a rapidly increasing family of alumni who 
are proud to be called Terps. The University of Maryland Alumni 
Association has grown to more than ^s,ooo dues-paying members 
since its inception in 1989. 

As a gateway to the world, the university has established more 
than 250 educational, research and economic relationships with 
people and institutions in countries such as China, India, Brazil, 
Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The Maryland Technology 
Enterprise Institute, or Mtech; the University of Maryland Small 
Business Development Network; and the Dingman Center for 
Entrepreneurship nurture a culture of thriving entrepreneurship 
at the university. They are leading efforts to educate and assist 
business start-ups, createtechnology ventures and connect Maryland 
companies with university resources to help them succeed. Through 
its Office of Technology Commercialization, the university has 
secured more than 480 U.S. patents, licensed more than 575 
technologies and helped to create 68 high-tech startup companies. 
Among them are award-winning firms that create alternative energy 
solutions, national security tools and data systems to protect against 
Internet viruses. Companies served by Mtech sold more than $27.8 
billion in goods and services over the last 25 years. 

Maryland is part of the prestigious 6^-member Association 
of American Universities and the only public institution in the 
Maryland-D.C. area with membership in the nation's most 
distinguished honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. 

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

With alumni clubs from Miami to Taipei, Taiwan, the alumni 
association strives to maintain and strengthen ties between the 
university and its graduates. Member events such as pre-game parties, 
bull roasts, picnics, golf tournaments, dinner cruises and subscriptions 
to Terp magazine help keep alumni connected to the university 
and each other. All graduating seniors and successful master's and 
doctoral candidates receive a one-year free membership in the 
Maryland Alumni Association.

Doctoral Degrees 



The doctoral degree is the most advanced earned degree conferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct types: the practitioner's degree and the research degree. The first 
type represents advanced training for the practice of various professions, principally doctor 
of medicine, juris doctor, doctor of pharmacy and doctor of veterinary medicine. These 
degrees do not involve the completion of original research by the student. The University of 
Maryland, at the professional school in Baltimore, awarded the first two dental degrees on 
March 9, 1S41.
